I have not been happy with my attempts at banners. They simply aren’t working in the way I envision them, and for now I am tossing the project aside. Perhaps I’ll re-visit at Valentine’s Day time or Easter.
Know what? that’s alright. Because mistakes, projects gone bad, and hideously ugly creations are a part of my process.
Above is a die cut snow globe gone wild (in the worst sense). Oh yeah. Using photo paper because I’m too lazy to figure out where I have white cardstock… well… sometimes things do NOT work as substitutions. SO noted that my rock candy crackle paint doesn’t like to play with that particular paper. It’s like a nasty sunburn or something… so gross…
Y’all know that you have to be careful when stamping with distress inks and you don’t let it dry/set and instead in your big hurry apply rock candy distress crackle paint right away. You know it’s gonna bleed out until you can’t see the image, right?
*NOW I REMEMBER THIS*
These are just three of today’s examples of crafting gone bad. That’s alright. It’s cool baby. I have had a few “HEY! mine didn’t turn out like so-and-so’s” moments too – in which I realize I didn’t follow directions.
Sometimes that leads to AWESOME things…
Like my first tag inspired by Tim’s 12 Tags of Christmas. I got all mixed up, ended up adding steps that aren’t there… and it WORKED. I LOVE IT. I will be sharing a full how-to this weekend because I have two other posts that are going up (also GOOD things) before it!
Just remember – the goofs can lead to good things – so enjoy the process…

Blunders can result in beauty too…lesson learned. Thanks for sharing 🙂
Just wanted to say how much I’m enjoying this series on your blog. I’m looking forward to next week’s BPS class! Thanks and Merry Christmas!
I always save my boo-boos. You never know when it (or part of it) will come in handy for another project. It’s part of the Journey!
OH! I love “OOPS!” Fun to see yours too 🙂 Thanks for sharing and reminding me that we are all human 🙂
So cool to see the things that don’t work – you learn something each time! TFS May!
